Uploadcare seeks to give simple controls over complex file handling technologies so that entrepreneurs and developers out there could spend more time implementing their ideas, not techs. We help detach files and their drawbacks from your activities. And, you can always join us: either from scratch or by migrating.
This article describes the six clear steps that will get you migrated from Filestack to Uploadcare.
You’ll be using Migro, our migration utility. You’ll need your Uploadcare API key and a list of files to migrate. But, first things first.
In case you don’t have an Uploadcare account, make one. Log in to your dashboard and choose or create a project you’d like your files to migrate to. Click your project title and navigate to the API keys section to discover your project’s public and secret keys.
In the assets section, you can find the list of all your files uploaded to Filestack. Great, we’ll use this list to make the text file we need. Open the developer console of your browser to be able to run a script. The pic below shows what you should be doing in Chrome.
You’ll need to get this script to proceed. Just copy it and paste to the developer console. Run the script and wait for its completion. The time it takes largely depends on the number of files uploaded into your application.
Ensure everything is set. The best way to do this would be adding a couple of files of different types and sizes to your migration list and running Migro. Here’s how:
$ migro <PUBLIC_KEY><INPUT_FILE>
Note, in order to upload non-image files to your Uploadcare project, you’ll need to provide your payment information under account settings on your dashboard.
Migro gets files from your list via the From URL method and puts them to the project associated with your Public Key. Then, Migro writes its outputs to a specified file: one output string per line.
Each output string includes: <input_link>, <status>, and <output_link>. Check output status for every file in your test list and adjust the Migro settings if necessary, check out this readme for more info.
Calculate the amount of storage needed for your files and drop us a line. It’ll help us set up the proper plan for your account and inform you when everything’s ready. We won’t charge you anything until your content is migrated and tested.
